Due to some concerns about managing density of athletes and vehicle traffic at our June race, the Super Sprint bike and run courses have been returned back to the distances for the Super Sprint race that we run in August.
New June Super Sprint Distances:
1/4 mile swim, 15.8 mile bike, 2 mile run.
If you are an athlete already signed up for the Super Sprint and have questions or concerns about the changes, please feel free to contact race director, Patty Swedberg, or athlete services manager, Kathy Morrisson. Either of us would be happy to speak with you about that.
